Apple has decided to once again extend its free trial period for its Apple TV+ streaming service. This trial were consisted with the purchase of any Apple device and were set to last for a year until November 1, 2020. Like that, Apple extended the trial until February of this year. This extension will push the free trial until July 2021 and it will be the second for the platform.
Extending the free trial is certainly a nice gesture on Apple’s part. Production delays haven’t allowed them to add content that they were hoping for by this point. It wouldn’t make much sense to make users pay for the service if it is not 100% up to par. This will give customers more time to decide if once the free trial expires in July, they want to drop $4.99 a month for the streamer.
APPLE EXTENDS APPLE TV+ FREE TRIALS UNTIL JULY 2021
The extension of the free trial for Apple TV+ comes in the wake of production delays that have plagued the industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Morning Show, For All Mankind, and See, are still waiting for their second season rollouts. Dickinson and Servant is their shows that have released a second season. Subscribers who had free subscriptions that were set to expire any time from Feb. 2021 to Jun. 2021 will get an extension until Jul.
Apple TV+ is bringing some films with a bit of buzz to the platform. Apple TV+ also acquired Tom Hanks’s Greyhound last year. When it was decided to do away with the film’s theatrical release due to the pandemic. In the war of the streaming services, Apple TV+ has been a bit under the radar but there is potential for growth.

Google seems to be on a big hack-and-slash spree this year, culling products in an attempt to streamline its offerings. The tech giant is known for abandoning or restructuring certain devices, services, and apps that didn’t take off the way it hoped. But 2020 seems to be the year for it. And now Android Police reports that Google will be discontinuing Nest Secure, its $400 home security system, by the end of the year.
The company launched Nest Secure in 2017. The product itself didn’t seem too bad. Unlike other home security systems that require a technician to install, Nest Secure was easy enough for a user to set up themselves. Similar in size to a smart speaker. It featured a keypad on which users could punch in a predetermined code to arm and disarm the system.
Google Will Be Discontinuing Nest Secure
But the system itself was limiting. Its motion detector could only sense motion within a 10-foot radius. Privacy concerns could have also been one of the reasons why Nest Secure didn’t catch on. Until Google integrated this product with Google Assistant in February 2019, users didn’t know the alarm system’s hub had an always-on microphone.
Just add Nest Secure to the pile of products that have been killed by Google. By June of next year, the company will completely do away with Hangouts and migrate everyone’s chat history and contacts to Google Chat. Trusted Contacts, an app that lets users share their location with emergency contacts, bites the dust in December, the same month as Google Play Music and Cloud Print are also dying. Google’s Daydream VR headsets and apps are completely dead already, along with a bunch of other gadgets and features you may or may not have even known existed.
